Eat sushi at Akiko's on Mason - best sushi around, get a sumo roll... Then the theatre is 1 minute away on foot!

Theater is tiny and you wonder how all those actors will fit on stage but they do. Set design is fabulous. I cannot recommend this show too highly.

The sparse set only added to the raw truths of punch-drunk love , as depicted in this tragic play by Tolstoy. It showcased Method Acting at its finest!
